[prMac.com] San Francisco, California - NoodleWorks Interactive is pleased to announce the release of their award winning Noodle Words - Action Set 1 app for the iPhone. Noodle Words, a highly animated learning app, is now available on the App Store for either the iPhone(R), iPod touch(R), or iPad(R).
Noodle Words is a word toy for kids ages 4-7, an innovative new concept for introducing words and their meanings through engaging interaction. "At NoodleWorks, we believe learning is fun, which is why we offer alternative opportunities for kids to learn through the joy of play", said Mark Schlichting. "It is our goal to create a new category of interactive educational media that deserve to be called Toys."
Noodle Words includes 18 action words (verbs) that convey their meanings through lively movement and sound. The Noodle Bugs further reinforce word comprehension as they enthusiastically act out each word's meaning with their silly and spirited antics. By tapping, dragging, and swiping the words on the iPhone's touch screen, kids literally play with the animated words to make them spin, sparkle, jump, and bump.
With over 100 lively and humorous bug and word animations, Noodle Words invites every child to come play and explore the essence of these action words. It is this deep engagement that allows them to learn new words and their meanings effortlessly.
